Formula Electric Racing NUST (FERN) is a program by NUST university of Pakistan that comprises young students that work for upgrading and designing NUST’s racing vehicle, the first in the world. Recently, the FERN team has made its most significant international achievement. It was announced that Tesla and this group of brilliant young people from Pakistan are to collaborate soon.

The nation marks it as a promising development that the team has brought Tesla on board as an innovative partner. The collaboration will provide FERN with technical assistance, technology sharing, and critical components for the development of electric vehicles (EVs) from a global EV pioneer.

The team contacted Tesla Inc. in an effort to collaborate. Tesla endorsed becoming the Pakistan group’s creative partner after seeing their remarkable portfolio. And with that, FERN has now established itself as the first and only educational institute to work collaboratively with Tesla. Tesla is one of the world’s most recognisable names in the automotive industry, thereby bringing great honour to Pakistan.

A team member from FERN said that,

Words are inadequate to convey the joy and gratitude we feel for landing a partnership with a brand like Tesla.


FERN has been a dominant force in both the annual Formula Student competitions and a few other competitions. The team has a consistent record of finishing in top positions in every international competition in which they compete.

Their current project vehicle has a 22 km range and a 5 kWh battery. It accelerates faster than most cars on Pakistani roads, reaching a top speed of 120 kph and reaching 100 kph from a complete stop in 4.5 seconds.

The group is currently creating various internal parts that it intends to incorporate into forthcoming iterations of the vehicle. The nation continues to be proud of FERN’s dedication and constant hard work.
